Why did the British conquer the Sepoy?

The Sepoy were a native american troop, that the british tried to colonize in 1857. The reason the british tried to colonize India where the sepoy were, was because they had raw materials that the british wanted. Such as tea, cloth, and herbs, the british figured that if they had conquered India, the precious materials would be a lot cheaper.

The mutiny of indians for the battle was started in Uttar Pradesh. The munity soon escaladed into an uprising of the sepoys, and indian civilians throughout northern india. The british cruelly put down the uprising, slaughtering civilians indiscriminately.

The indian rebellion restored the power of the Mogul emperor, as word spread so did the mutiny across the continent. Eventually the british regained power, and the british cruelly put down the uprising, slaughtering civilians indiscriminately.

What were the consequences of the Rebellion?

British assumed direct rule of India Queen’s, and they exploited and repressed them. Also the British no longer trusted the Indians.
